THE HOME MULTIMEDIA VDI NETWORK
The multimedia VDI (Voice Data Image) network is a wired network that can carry all weak current signals to all rooms within the home. These signals are:
- Telephone (voice)
- xDSL, fiber optic, and Ethernet (data)
- DTTV, satellite, and cable (image)
Like electrical outlets, weak-current VDI network devices are wired in a star configuration. Incoming signals are bundled together at the entrance to the dwelling (at the residential service duct or distribution enclosure, inside a home network cabinet.
The cables to all of the home’s weak current outlets are wired from the home network cabinet.
CURRENT STANDARDS AND CODES
In France, weak-current networks in new-build residential properties must meet the specifications in standard NF C 15-100 and, since September 2016, in Article R111-14 of the French Building and Housing Code.
These standards and codes set forth the number and type of connections that must be installed for each type of dwelling.
PERFORMANCE OF HOME NETWORK CABINET COMPONENTS
When signals are transmitted using RJ45 jacks and twisted-pair cables, certain rules must be followed to ensure optimal performance. These rules are explained in the XP C 90-483 standard for residential properties in France.
Omelcom adheres to the charter created by industry associations IGNES and SYCABEL and is committed to offering products that comply with the latest standards and codes.
